n. sp., a new calcareous green alga, is described from the Late Jurassic Plassen Carbonate Platform of the Northern Calcareous Alps of Austria. Other occurrences are reported from the Western and Eastern Carpathians, Morocco and Sicily/Italy. n. sp. is characterized especially by a microcrystalline (micritic) thallus appearance and cortical filaments distinctly inclined to the longitudinal axis. The new species was found in shallow water peri-reefal carbonates of platform margin facies and resediments (mass-flows, breccias, calciturbidites) in the adjacent hemipelagic basins.

Andere Vorkommen sind die West- und Ostkarpaten Marokko und Sizilien/Italien. Halimeda misiki n. sp. ist insbesondere durch einen mikrokristallinen (mikritischen) Thallus und deutlich zur Längsachse geneigte kortikale Filamente charakterisiert. Die neue Art wurde in peri-rezifalen Flachwasser-karbonaten einer Plattformrand-Fazies und in Resedimenten (Mass-Flows, Brekzien, Calciturbiditen) in angrenzenden hemipelagischen Becken gefunden.
